Haven't played much

Other then getting rather bored playing I haven't been on because of homework. I have tons of programming assignments that I've needed to do.

I picked up zerg and so far I really like them. I feel like there is so much more to do or so much more that I can do. I haven't tried using zerg in my 1v1 though because I'm sure I'll just get a hundred losses in a row before I start winning again.

1000 points

Not really impressive anymore but I hit 1000 points in diamond the other day. I only play about 2-4 1v1 games a day so I don't accumulate points very fast. I usually only like playing when I have bonus pool, but occasionally I play past that.  I kind of want to finish getting all the achievements but I would have to sacrifice my 1v1 rating. I know 1000 points isn't very good but I feel someone what accomplished by it just to throw it away for the sake of achievement points. Most likely I will end up waiting for season 2 to throw  my placement matches and grind wins.

Achievement Points: 4330
1v1 ranking: 1008 points Diamond rank 8

So I started playing this game called progress quest. The whole idea is to just leave the game on and it gains levels and goes on quests by itself completely unattended. It's kind of funny and I felt like making one for Starcraft 2. This picture is my 1st draft concept for the program. Nothing is implemented yet I'm just trying to get a feel of how I want to do things. If anyone has any ideas feel free to comment.

Losing Streak

I had a terrible losing streak the other day. It's hard to tell whether I was just doing really poorly or being completely outplayed. I wasn't able to win a game until it dropped me to a gold opponent. I'm doing better now but I was so close 800 points and now I am back down to 740 or so. I think part of the problem with a losing streak is losing confidence. You are slightly pre disposed to losing if you are believe you are going to lose at the start. Just like any probabilities the previous match has no effect on the next. Just because you lost one match doesn't mean you are predetermined or more likely to win or lose the next. So the point is just not to let losses get to you and you should never run into a huge losing streak like I did.
